History
Purchased this bike 12/30/2013. Original owner put 6,000 miles on it, 2nd owner put 6,000 miles on it and I bought it from him with 12,000 original miles. Been out of motorcycling for quite awhile and getting back into it. Love this bike! This bike is mostly stock.
2000 Honda Shadow Aero (Red and Black)

Modifications

Drivetrain
17' front whitewall, 15" rear whitewall.
140/80/15 frt, 170/80/15 rear. Chrome spoked wheels frt and rear.
Interior
1100cc V-Twin, 5 speed transmission, shaft drive. Water cooled. Chrome 2 into 1 collector exhaust.
Exterior
Had a very narrow and somewhat short windshield. Replaced it with a National City Dakota 4.5 windshield. Also put on Cobra Boulevard Highway bars and Kuryakn Chrome highway pegs.
Audio
Replaced the stock rear shocks with Heavy Duty 11.5" Stubby shocks to lower the back end about 1.5". Had to notch the rear fender because it was hitting the rear brake caliper on big bumps. Love the lowered feel and look of this Aero now. Have to be careful on those sharp turns, I hear some scraping every now and then if I lean it over too far.
Suspension
Jafrum Black and Gray metal studded saddlebags with matching tool bag. Custom upholstered seats. Passenger backrest and luggage rack. Kuryakyn 6218 Premier Throttle Assist. Chrome clutch and brake levers with skulls on the end. Chrome and rubber grips with skulls on the end. Chrome horn cover. Replaced black side covers with chrome ones.
Wheel and Tire
2 LED Xenon white high powered running lamps. Added a phone mount and usb charger for the phone/gps. Added some LED lights on the rear fender and luggage rack as extra brake lights to wake up drivers behind me when I put on my brakes. Added some red glow lights as well to glow the engine, rear wheel and the ground below the bike. Kuryakn chrome 3 way accessory switch for the cruiser lights and fog lights I have added. WOLO Bad Boy Air Horn to get their attention when needed! Digital Tachometer/voltmeter on handlebars.
